More on Duke's 'rush to judgment'

When Mike Skube was Raleigh correspondent for the Winston-Salem Journal, he was a crackerjack reporter who came up with a series of good stories about an overly-ambitious flunky in the Jim Hunt political machine who wrote some nasty memos about other state politicians and their helpers. And when Skube was books editor of The News & Observer of Raleigh, his pointed columns – sometimes on books, sometimes not – were don’t-miss reads. He won the Pulitzer Prize for criticism while at the N&O.
Now Skube is teaching journalism at Elon University but his opining hasn’t skipped a beat. He still lives in Durham, and the other day published a column in the Los Angeles Times on the controversy in Durham over charges that three Duke lacrosse players had raped an exotic dancer they hired for a team party. The rape charges have been dismissed, though other serious charges are still pending. Here’s a link to Skube’s commentary.

Simple public apologies would be very appropriate. I suppose, however, that such repentence could be used against them in civil actions. Maybe the lacrosse team should walk around campus beating their own pots and pans.

LOOk as a Northerner this kind of treatment is out right Bigotry; Look we understand a complaint made ,but by a strip dancer. Alan Gell was another example of Northern Bigotry; why two know drug users and prostitutes were States witness to a murder trial. Back in Ohio where I am from both of those cases would hit a scrupulous eye coming from People who are breaking the law. Most North Carolinians I have met are great exagerators , even Southern Law enforcement has told me this. But whatever Ohio has liars also thats why I moved from there. Theres liars in Washington. If Jesus comes bck we are all going to HELL .

My last Boss from N.C. told me to watch who you associate with down here; People are in trouble with the law and you chum up to them and they are told to sqeaul like a pig on someone for their sins; Thats how you end up in trouble in N.C. so have People checked out before you date them or play poker or drink fire water.

Maybe if Mr. Nifong tatooed a public apology across his forehead to wear the rest of his life it might be appropriate.

Do you know rohan crone? I like it.
My brother often go to the internet bar to buy rohan gold and play it.
After school, He likes playing games using these rohan online crone with his friend.
I do not like to play it. Because I think that it not only costs much money but also spend much time. One day, he give me many rohan online gold and play the game with me.
I came to the bar following him and found rohan money was so cheap. After that, I also go to play game with him.
